For entertainment purposes, I ran 2 sections of the DDB 50Km. I was going for 2 hours or 10 miles, whichever came first.
Unfortunate incident at about 44 minutes, I tripped on a rock and went down fast and hard. As the ground, or protruding rocks approached my face, I managed to get my hands out, but this could be bad.
Upon opening my eyes on landing, I noted no serious pains. The rocks were just inches away for my face. I sat there a few minutes, as the adrenaline came and went.
Had a moderately sprained right middle finger, a bruised left palm, definitely a scrape under my tights on the right leg around my knee, but nothing to keep me from running, so got up and continued, with a renewed sense of vulnerability.
I had never fallen before on training runs in the Blue Hills, so this was ….discouraging?

A good steady run. Number 6, I should have been more cautious, I know this area is confusing, and the pine saplings make visibility poor. Tried to compass in from a known point on the south trail, came upon Ethan who seemed misplaced. After a shot at where I thought it should be, I went to the N trail and came in from near the intersection, Ethan was just leaving, so not too much time lost.
Something of a NEOC reunion of the 80's, Bob Lux, JR and Beth, Alar and Eva, and so many others.
